Hello crafty friends! Happy Holidays! We are going retro for this hop. I absolutely love creating retro/vintage crafts. I am so excited for this month's hop.
I created two cards for this hop. This first one has more of a tetro vibe:
It is now only a few hours before our hop starts. For some reason, I was unable to upload my photos this past evening. I am so relieved I can now. I am so proud of these two cards and I couldn't wait to share. Isn't this woman fabulous? She screams, retro, don't you think? Six stamps were used on this card. The woman, Ikat background, stitching, and flower are all from the June 2019 SMAK, enjoy where you are. Filmstrip stamp is from the September 2017 SMAK, truest life. The beautiful sentiment is from simply blessed.
As you may know, I absolutely love layering stamps. The trick is finding ones that compliment each other and the right color palette. And the bonus, no coloring necessary. So if you need a quick card, this is definitely the way to go.
My second card screams vintage:
Three stamps were used here and they came from a 'vintage' Kit of the Month, I am referring to this kit as 'vintage' because it is from February 2013, so it is an older kit. It is called, let love grow. This has always been one of my favorite kits...just so many lovely images and sentiments. I stamped the ink well with quill on vintage themed paper. The sentiments were stamped on chipboard and sealed with a spray. Initially, I was going to use lace at the bottom of the card, but I saw this fun tulle trim in my stash and decided to go with that.
I hope you can see my love for retro/vintage on these two cards.
Now, for even more inspo. Up next is Colleen with her beautiful creations.
Thanks everyone for your continued support! We hope you enjoyed our hop this month. Come back next month. Oh wow, it'll be 2022. The Friends of Unity have some amazing things lined up for the new year...so stay tuned.
Wishing you peace and love this holiday season!
